It’s a hot, humid August day and I’ve got a basket of the last strawberries of summer sitting on
my kitchen counter.
What’s a girl to do?
These strawberries are beautiful. They’ve had an excellent season of growing and are
ready for their time to shine. My mom picked this basket up at the fruits and vegetables
market yesterday. It’s all the way (which is no ways away at all) from Oka, Quebec.
A pretty little village that you can get to by a lovely ferry ride and where perfect
So, what is a girl to do with a basket of berries like this…other than eat them all up, of course!
I know I always say that, but it’s so true.
Well, it’s seriously sweltering here and we could use a nice cold treat, so
frozen strawberry mousse it is!
This is pretty simple stuff -
Just a few good ‘ol ingredients, a whirl in the blender, some tender loving freezer time
and you are good to go, in a matter of speaking. Please don’t go outside or the mousse
will probably melt into a puddle in under 30 seconds.
What are you doing to keep cool today?
Happy Saturday everyone!
